Participate in a Study on Pain in Adult-onset Idiopathic Dystonia

Virtual Research Study: Validating Assessment Tool for Pain in Adult-onset Idiopathic Dystonia

Current tools to measure specific dystonia pain types and characteristics are not available yet. A better understanding of pain in dystonia is needed to help develop specific treatment options. Dr. Bruno and Dr. Martino from the University of Calgary are working to develop a tool to identify and quantify pain in dystonia. We would like to invite individuals with adult-onset idiopathic dystonia with or without pain ages 18+ to help us validate this new assessment tool.

What Is Required of Participants?

A one-time 30-minute virtual meeting to go over the new assessment tool for pain in dystonia and other related dystonia questions.
